Belle-Skinner brings her sophisticated folk pop to Sidewalk Cafe` on 11.29

Belle-Skinner hails from Upstate New York, which is where she cut her newest record, We Shut Our Eyes. But she now calls New York City home, and it’s here where she plays her original music several times a month at venues all around Manhattan and Brooklyn. The rising artist’s sound blends mid-century acoustic pop with breathy vocals smacking of St. Vincent. Hear the influence of Sufjan Stevens, Kate Bush, and Joanna Newsom in songs like “And Then You Leave (Go On)” and “Siren Song”. Upcoming live shows include November 29th at the East Village’s Sidewalk Café, where Belle-Skinner will perform with Kelly Quigley, PandafanGeorgia June, and Emily & Friends. The show begins at 7:00 pm. If you can’t make it, check Belle-Skinner’s website for future tour dates. Do make it a point to attend at least one of them. – Will Sisskind

Rosebug Release Debut LP and Feature Track "I Am The One"

With the recent release of their debut LP “Worst Way,” Brooklyn’s Rosebug showcase lead single “I Am The One” after a series of local shows.  Opening with the melody line figure presented in singular guitar notes, an ethereal vocal chorus emerges from reverberated halls.  “I am the one with all the answers,” sings frontwoman Becca Chodorkoff amid the slow burning groove and background vocal waves.  While accompanying guitar, bass and drums establish understated yet essential propulsion, chiming overtones emerge alongside the morphing voices.  Lyrics express one’s need to push forward with self-confidence, while keeping internal doubts that we may not be all that special at bay.  The overall mood feels similar to early 90’s pioneers Cocteau Twins, Sarah McLachlan as well as contemporary artists like Shana Falana.  The album can now be heard and acquired on Spotify, iTunes or Portland based cassette revival label Dazzleships Records. - Dave Cromwell

New Strange Parts Album Available for Streaming & Download

Strange Parts, the duo of Attia Taylor and Corey Duncan (Oh! Pears), recently shared their new album, Rainier Bedstuy Home Recordings. The collection of songs were recorded between Duncan's hometown neighborhood, Rainier Valley, in Seattle, WA and Bedstuy Brooklyn, where Taylor currently resides. Though these demos didn't quite make the cut for the group's forthcoming LP, they are "adored," and stand as a "document of Attia and Corey's writing process". Take the lo-fi ditties for a spin below. (Photo by Adam Haney)

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist Poll Winner: Santi Slade

Singer-songwriter Santi Slade sounds like he had some pretty cool parents, being raised on a steady stream of Beck flowing throughout his household as a child. After getting his feet wet, writing songs in high school with pal Catherine Dwyer, whom he also now backs on drums in Spring Onion, Slade released his sophomore EP Afloat this past summer, a breezy, laidback collection of tracks, rooted in tropicalia. Expect to find Santi performing out around town more in the coming year with a backing band, and you can get to know the up-and-coming musician, who is our latest Featured Artist Poll Winner, HERE.

Spelling Reform Record Release Show at JB's Nov. 19

Streamlining sensitive, out-in-the-open, storytelling songs that simultaneously burst and bloom with enthusiastic instrumental exuberance, Spelling Reform have a knack for detailing those caught-in-your-own-head pensions, without stagnating or slowing down. Tonight, the quartet celebrates the release of its full-length debut, No One's Ever Changed, available via Black Rd. Records. Cherry, the songwriting vehicle for Russell Edling (Cave People, ex-Kite Party), occupies the opening slot, crafting dreary, contagious bedroom pop. The disenchanted but melodic rock of trio Night Windows completes the locally flavored billing at Johnny Brenda’s this evening. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
